I’m always looking for easy craft things to do with my Granny Red, for those of you who don’t remember she’s 95, works out at a gym 3 days a week, and considered blind. I’m always limited with craft ideas, but felt with some help she could do this one. I did all the cutting and she assemble these inexpensive crepe paper flowers (all items can be purchased at the Dollar Store….crepe paper, glue, and skewers are what I purchased).
Gram still can see silhouettes, so that helps some but most of her projects are done by feel. She does have a big magnifying glass she used to see the flowers better. I let her pick the colors and we got started flower making. I was quite surprised how time consuming they are to make. It took about 2 hours to make the bouquet you see here.
I scoured Pinterest for several ideas and used the pattern from here. I did modify it to suit our needs and make it easier for Granny, but it’s very easy to follow.
I’ll be back soon to show you how I made the white vase they’re in. It’s another Dollar Store craft.
